ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I hurt all the time. It wasn't always like this though. I use to really enjoy my life. My kids.my husband. But then I started getting sick, and it hasn't stopped since then. I feel like a hollowed out shell. It started as rogue pains. An occasional I headache. But it's progressed. Then about a year ago it was like being hit by a freight train, it all just came crashing down on me. My hip and sacrum joint area all got stiff and painful. Then came the nerve pain, shooting nerve pain all the time. Then it was numbness, full limbs going numb. Migraines that never let up. Everything hurts. All the time. I've seen 2 nuerologist, 1 nuerosurgeon, 3 orthos, 1 infectious Disease, an immunologist and pain management. I still don't know what to do. Or how to have a better life. No one has been able to tell me what is happening. I end up in the ER every couple of weeks because of flare ups that I can't control. Every test they've done has come back normal. We've done brain MRI, and lumber MRI, and lots of hip x Ray's. Nothing is standing out. I just want my life back.
